A 43-year-old member asked:

Can you tell me if a person that had breast surgery about 11 weeks ago, would that person be ok to smoke?

Smoking is never ok: But if you are completely healed inside and out it should not cause any wounds. Of course, I have no idea what kind of surgery you had, so you should ask your surgeon for his/her opinion and not act on my words.
Dr. Tom Pousti
Specializes in Plastic Surgery
Not Good Idea.: Best not to smoke for many reasons, including ongoing healing… best wishes.
